Comments: Great mostly flat walk in the woods along Oliverian Brook. Out and back to the second crossing was ~5 miles. Passes Passaconaway cutoff, but water crossing cut short before the Square Ledge Branch trail or Lawrence trail. Walked a bit up/down stream and didn't see a way across that didn't require fording. In the summer, this seems like it would be a good spot to cool down (or even passable at lower water levels) at about the mid point of the trail, but not with icy temps and waters.

Trail is easy to follow most of the time, with a couple of sections that are difficult to follow with the leaves covering the path. Even after returning to the trailhead at ~10am, the parking lot had only ~6 cars in it on a clear (but chilly) Sunday.
